Art teachers are valuable. Art teachers are resilient, flexible, and dedicated. Art teachers provide spaces for students to grow, create, compose, discover, experiment, and add color! Art teachers instill an appreciation for the visual arts, promote creative critical thinking, build awareness and empathy, and solve bigger issues through artmaking. To top it off, art teachers have a lot of spunk, ingenuity, and sparkle!
